Calculate Linux

Calculate Linux sono tre distribuzioni Linux basate su Gentoo. Calculate Directory Server (CDS) è la soluzione per server che supporta Windows e Linux tramite LDAP + SAMBA. Calculate Linux Desktop (CLD) è una distribuzione per workstation disponibile  con KDE, GNOME o Xfce. Calculate Linux Scratch (CLS) è un live CD che permette di costruire la propria distribuzione.

Versione 17.6

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

System installation

  • Calculate gets a new flavour, “Calculate Linux Container”, to be installed on a LXC/LXD virtual machine.
  • No default password is provided on a newly installed system. Instead, a user password is prompted for at installation time.
  • You can manage access priveleges via Calculate Console. For instance, a user may only have access to updates if the admin chooses so.
  • Kernel configuration now can be protected by a password.
  • The ‘sudo’ group was added for sudo authentication.
  • Autopartition is the default partition scheme when installing from a Live USB.
  • A bios_boot partition is not created automatically for UEFI installations.
  • If the UEFI parameters have not changed, the UEFI boot record will not be overwritten.
  • Building-only dependencies are not included in the distribution.

Update procedure

  • The Calculate repository now provides 8284 packages.
  • Binary packages index is cached and the cache updated whenever Portage is.

Building a customized system based on CL

  • You can build your own LXC/LXD system.
  • Automatic dependencies are calculated.
  • Automagic dependencies (shallow dependencies recognized at build time) are handled now.
  • The @autodeps set was added, containing all skipped packages.
  • The –with-bdeps option is off, so that only dependencies required for package building are fetched.
  • A new option, –clean-bdeps was added, allowing to remove building-only packages from a system to be built.
  • Update dependencies are not pre-calculated.


  • System appearance can be configured by editing the /etc/calculate/ini.env file .
